Sally Cotter returns to Alger

Just a few of the cast members from the upcoming performance of Sally Cotter and the Prisoner of Ala Katraz. The performance will take place on Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6.

Sequel to their play last May, Sally Cotter and the Censored Stone the Alger Angels will be presenting their next play Sally Cotter and the Prisoner of Ala Katraz. 

Halls of Harry’s Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry are now the halls of the Frogbull Academy of Sorcery and the characters have all been replaced with different names, but the same concept.

The performance is set to take place on Friday, April 5 at 5 p.m. and Saturday, April 6  at 7 p.m. at the Alger Theater. 

Although they wouldn’t reveal the plot of the play this time around, the characters insisted that it would be full of “romance, comedy and it will be three times funnier than the last one”. 

The only information provided was that Sally Cotter is Ersa Malaise’s arch rival and the play was based off the Harry Potter series. 

Alexa Philbert will play Sally Cotter; Laura Goeres, Ersa Malaise; Colton Koperak, Dave; Kylie Orlando, Harmonica; Joshua Rose, Lord Murderdeath; Porter Johnson, Reubennon Ryebread; Clyde Mobley, Headmaster Underdrawers; Ella Stanton, Slobbers; Brandon Markus, Taurus Ford; Ashley Geil, Dr. Aculanouforet; Quincey Ludwig, Professor Shiftia Shape.

The play is the work of Dean O’Corroll  who took inspiration from the J.K. Rowling books and has seen many performances of the piece of the years across the nation.  Play Director Joann Dickson leads the kids through their scripts and is prepping them for the big show night. 

Not even a year after forming, the Alger Angels raised $6,000 during a March spaghetti feed with the wide-spread support from the community. Now two years ago, Dickson was asked if she would be willing to help the group put together a play to earn funds for the effort. 

After the play, questions were taken from the audience and it was the general consensus that a sequel would happen. The original cause behind the production was to benefit Lakeview Community Partnership efforts to reopen the theater for the public.

Tickets will be at the Lake County Chamber of Commerce for $10 general admission and at the door before each performance.
